Roadside Reading

Here's a car with more stickers than I could read.

This masked bear in Wardensville implores us to "Flatten the Curve." Coincidentally, Tom has posted a masked bear on his Signs linkup

I've been dismayed at how many people refuse to wear masks, even though they've been shown to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This bear's mask would make it unlikely that he would breathe on you (if he were a person instead of a carved bear). My mask is to protect people I speak to. Yes, it can feel uncomfortable in warm weather, but getting the disease would feel worse. And I actually like how it makes the odors of the detergent aisle in the supermarket a little less annoying! (I'm allergic to many fragrances.)

The sign on the left of the next image puzzled me until I looked it up. It is a hash tag of QAnon conspiracy posts on social media.

The remaining three pictures are ones I took in Warren County along 619. An electronic signs warns that a section of the road will be closed next week. 

The 619 Market has changed their sign to say "I thought air was free until I bought a bag of chips." 

The volunteer fire department is still trying to get new volunteers.


  1. Love that bear! We don't have to wear masks here, but I would like to.

  2. that's the motherload of bumper stickers. sure found a potbelly bear!
    ...I get so sick of hearing everytime a shooting happens that our "thought and prayers" are with you. true about chips!
    ...people aren't volunteers these days.
    Thanks Linda for stopping by!

  3. I have no idea what prayers accomplish.

  4. Info re Q-Anon; they're more widespread & organized than generally known. Rather alarming.

  5. I like the sign about the potato chips--so true. Made me laugh.
